Ukraine's monopolist telephone company Ukrtelecom JSC has expanded the coverage of its fibre-optic network in the Zaporizhzhia region.
According to a statement from the Ukrainian operator, the town of Molochansk in the Pologiv municipality and the village of Terpinnia in the Melitopol municipality have been covered with the network.
"For this purpose, about 80 kilometers of fiber-optic lines have been laid. Subscribers who switch to the optical network have a higher Internet speed, the ability to use interactive TV," it said.
Zaporozhye region's fifty settlements have optical Internet now, the Ukrainian national operator added.
Last week, Ukrtelecom has expanded the coverage of its fibre-optic network in the Vinnitsia region, in the town of Kopaygorod in the Bar municipality.
In 2020 Ukrainian fixed broadband operator Ukrtelecom deployed 9.500km of new fibre-optic lines – a record figure for the company, which it noted was achieved despite the restrictions of compliance with COVID-19 quarantine measures.
